It keeps growing. Building a title is something that really is a lot easier than it may seem. Often times a title might not seem overly important and it looks like the company shouldn’t even keep it around. This is a problem that is a lot easier to solve than it might seem. The best way to make the title seem important is to have people fight over it, which is exactly what will be happening soon.
Back in February 2019, WWE introduced the Women’s Tag Team Titles, bringing them back for the first time in almost thirty years. It was a big deal for the women’s division, but then things fell apart in a hurry, with the titles almost never being defended and the champions not being on television for long stretches of times. Things have picked up a bit in recent weeks though and that will be the case on Sunday.
WWE has announced that new Women’s Tag Team Champions Bayley and Sasha Banks will defend their titles against the IIconics and Nikki Cross/Alexa Bliss in a triple threat match at Backlash. Bayley and Banks defeated Cross and Bliss for the titles last week on SmackDown, which came less than a month after the IIconics defeated Cross and Bliss in a non-title match. Backlash takes place Sunday, June 14.

They have a recent history. Check out what the three teams have been doing lately:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that can help the division more than anything else. The problem with the titles has been the lack of interest in what the champions are doing. It might just be a short term thing, but they have been defended several times in the last month and that is going to get them some attention. If the wrestlers want the titles, the titles are seen as valuable, which is the most important thing that can happen. Now just keep it going.
